News from the UK Slotcar Festival
Published: May 19, 2018
So what was all the fuss in England last weekend.
Not Chelsea beating Manchester United, not even the Royal Wedding.
For our Roving Reporter this was the most important thing happening in the UK last weekend.
Mainly due to Slot.it, Policar and Scalextric showing their latest releases, and product to come.
So what was there to see.
Biggest news is something we have been waiting for from Policar.
Great news to see a quality Manufacturer getting into the Set / Track market.
So what else was on view from Policar?
Looks like the Ferrari is coming along.
Also this Generic F1 car also from Policar.
Then we found the Mercedes DTM for Slot.it, their DTM series is certainly expanding nicely.
Anyone want a Maserati :)
Or the new Policar Toyota and Subaru.
Is that a IOM Police car ?
A TT ACK Rally? On the IOM I am guessing.
Another shot showing the Track in the background.
Another coming soon car from the Policar F 1 range was shown.
A few more images of the DTM cars from Slot.it.
To close out on the Slot.it Booth we have to show a Group C Car and what a feeling we get from this release.
Of course when you are in England to have to have Fish and Chips and no Slot Car Show would be complete without.
Sixty One years young and going strong. Scalextric showed a wide range of cars. From American Stock Cars to McLaren F1 GTR Le Mans entries a good looking line up from the Home Market main brand, in England they call the game "Scalextric" even if you are racing Slot.it cars.
Good to see a wide range from one of the oldest Brands in the marketplace.
This car should get everyone excited what can be said about a car in Red, White and Blue.
McLaren F1 GTR great to see these from Scalextric.
Classic Le Mans cars, Ferrari no less and of course to remind them a Ford GT40.
A few more Fords to keep the Brits happy on this Royal Day!!
This is a Mark IV and a Jaguar Baby, Yeah they did.
Mamma Mia there they go again.
These could plow up any field, but they sure ain't tractors.
From the Colonies?
Saving the best for last STOCK car racing from America, no Wranglers here nor a Good Wrench but WAY COOL!!!!
This one should chew up the competition.
There should be a frog with a really long tongue with this car, but does it make my butt wider?
After that to close the show our Roving Reporter rallied to the occasion and....
headed straight for the airport in a hurry F1 style..
JB signing off, Cheerio.
